Holiday Vision

September 9, 2019

Our holiday has sadly come to an end, but we have made some wonderful memories 💙. I don’t know if it’s because I wasn’t at home with my usual routine and things I am used to every day, but I really did notice my vision loss whilst I was away. Watching seagulls fly in and out of my blind spots, trying to look for the seal whilst everyone else was already watching him bob around the harbour, trying to work…

Hindsight

Me from the back in an infinity pool looking out to the sea in Croatia. I have my hair down and a neon green bikini on.

This picture was taken last August in Croatia. I felt like my life was very surreal at this point after my Stargardts diagnosis.

I remember going into the travel agents when I was 18 and the lady had no clue what I was on about and had never heard of it, so after that I ended up in Cyprus. After my diagnosis and thinking of places I would really like to see whilst my vision was still good enough, I got on the internet and started looking up beautiful places. Croatia came up…

Lake Garda

Our hotel room view in lake garda

When I was diagnosed with Stargardts, I knew there and then that I wanted to see more and visit more beautiful places before my vision deteriorated further. I started to make a list of places that were high priority and Lake Garda was one of them. In April my husband surprised me by suggesting we go for my 33rd birthday, I was so excited! It gave me something to focus on and I began searching for somewhere to stay! We…
